As an “INSIDE OUT MUSIC 20 YEARS ANNIVERSARY” 3 wise men – 3 Progressive Rock superstars; NEAL MORSE, ROINE STOLT and MIKE PORTNOY set out to take their bands on a world tour together in selected cities in spring 2013, for a superior evening of sunny, sincere, sinister, symphonic prog.
“Our promise to you is that you’ve never seen so many amps, cabinets, drums or keyboards on one single stage, one single night – for one single price.”
The shows will consist of members of both bands guesting on each others‚ tracks, with a Transatlantic-themed finale every night. Louder, Longer and Livier – and Lunier.
Roine: „We want to make it a very special tour ˆ to revive a bit of the early spirit of rock & prog, when music was about jamming, friendship and fun and record labels actually
understood enough to let musicians have the freedom to spend millions on capes – and concept albums about spacetravel,hobbits and ancient history. I can see lots of cool interaction that will culminate in a grand finale of Transatlantic music every night.”
This massive double bill (OK – triple bill ) will offer an evening of some of the best, energetic and most vital overblown progressive rock on the planet since the heyday of Pink Floyd, Yes, Genesis, Bay City Rollers, The Wheel ………and sliced bread. With 3 members of Transatlantic it is never far away to a cheerful Transatlantic mini reunion as finale, plus more guesting, jamming, surprises, dinosaurs in the cake – to make this tour very special and annoyingly entertaining, or even remotely shocking in it’s proglicious indulgence.
PROGREGALIA will lighten up even the darkest corner of your mind.
Bring all your friends to prog the bends.
